About the Author

Dr Andrew Symons has been teaching for 13 years. Educated in the UK, Dr Symons has taught in a wide range of schools – from prestigious schools in the UK, international schools in Eastern Europe, to bush schools in Africa – schools with an equally wide range of resources and student backgrounds. These experiences have taught Dr Symons to be adaptable: he is appreciative of the many different challenges the study of chemistry poses for students and the need for a variety of teaching and learning approaches. Alongside his chemistry knowledge, Dr Symons is an experienced teacher of English as a foreign language. This knowledge is usefully employed in this online book, making it uniquely accessible for students all over the world.

Dr Symons lives in Budapest, Hungary with his wife and two small daughters.
